now i'm overwhelmed!!!
Unfortunately, I only have the Promesas SACD as a copy on a SACD-R. A good friend of mine owns the original disc and he ripped the iso file. Nice music, therefore I still try to get the original edition.now i'm overwhelmed!!!
that is just... amazing!! drool drool
we all know about the Scorpions but that Tarmac disc is seriously scarce!!! (one came up on Discogs about 5 years ago and when I leapt on it the French seller pulled out with some cock & bull story about losing it! i didn't report them i'm not like that but really it was so disappointing, if they'd had a change of heart on price i would've considered negotiating because put simply that's as close as I've come to finding one in the last 10 years.).
of the rare Sony's, i'm presuming you have Frank Galan's "Promesas"?
(another i can't find for love nor money but i do know 3 people in this hobby each with a copy which gives me hope of maybe still tracking one down someday!)
now that is rare!
now that is rare!
I've missed out on this twice in the last 8-9 years, once I just wouldn't pay what they wanted for it and the other time more recently I hummed and hawed about it and by the time I decided its been years looking for it cheap without success and be done with it, it had gone! ha!
anyhoo, enough of my boring SACD life stories! many thanks for posting the pics! is the surround mix on the SACD the same as on the video?
You have the power, Adam, you have the power. Make it so.
Hi Linda.....How is Rendevoux - Chick Corea and if you have it David Gilmore Live @ Pompeii.....I just picked up both today on super cheap deals $14.99 for Corea and just under $30 for Gilmore the 4 disc super set. Also why arent any of these listed in the surround polls?Some truly great stuff, you guys!
I got the Harrison in Japan as part of the box set the Dark Horse Years. Sadly, the only SACD's in the box are the live in Japan album. The other 5 are RBCD.
I bought all the Alison Krauss SACD's. Did they have to jam both live SACD's into a single case? It's a good thing these are non-contact surfaces, otherwise I fear that I would have worn out "Baby, Now that I Found You." I couldn't begin to count how many times I played this track.
I bought the Frankie Goes to Hollywood sealed from UK when it was new. Recommended.
Other rare titles I recommend are:
Liberation - Hugh Masakela
Come On In This House - Junior Wells (RIP) Prior to the SACD, I had a DTS CD of this.
Rendevoux - Chick Corea
I'm kicking myself for not ordering that Holdworth SACD. It was in my cart one day at Tower and I opted out, since I was already dropping HUNDRED$$. Mistake.
Finally, I saw Guitar Shorty live and was absolutely blown away. (Caveat: ther's another guy calling himself that.) IMHO, John Lee Williamson was the REAL Sonny Boy, not Rice Miller. This is the REAL Guitar Shorty on SACD.
Guitar Shorty strolled through the audience in Grant Park at Chicago Blues Fest while singing and playing guitar! He also did somersaults on stage while playing his guitar. Just like Rahsaan Roland Kirk or Hendrix, his playing isn't just a freak act, the man can play. Shorty claimed to have mentored Hendrix, who picked up a few tricks from him.
"sounds like a load of old tripe being sieved through a sock".there is indeed and it is on my shopping list!
however i am waiting til one comes up super cheap (which hasn't happened in the last however many years) since it anecdotally sounds like a load of old tripe being sieved through a sock, so would purely be for the collection rather than for playing!
